First, you tick off what you want from their menu, and then they serve it to your table with a hot pot bubbling in the centre. They actually offer other ala carte items which are actually equally yummy, but we didn’t order any..
Having a sunday family feast, us being well, Chinese, we like to have something ferociously boiling, even during the hot weather… HOTPOT! Now, there are so many varieties of hotpot around, but this one is a traditional family favorite, it’s a simple hotpot but their meats come adorned with some sort of a marinade which is maybe fermented bean paste and an egg. I really don’t know what they put in it since i’ve tired to replicate it so here it is.
You get a choice of their fermented pink tofu and bean sauce which is indescribable but so delish. You flavour it with more garlic, lime and chilies to your liking or you can opt for a soy sauce.
It’s hearty, salty, flavourful, (due to the copious amounts of msg no doubt) even i get a rash afterwards it’s well worth it. Not much to say but all chinese after we’re done with the meat and veggies and all that’s left is a soup pot full of boiling stock and marinade, we would pop in bowlfuls of rice to make like an instant congee and either keep with for breakfast or eat it off… Cheers!
Happy Family Lunch!
